Painting results...

Maison No. 20 with a new coat of paint

What a busy day, yes you guessed correctly! I have been painting again today and also managed to find some time to take some more photos of Maison No. 20 and have updated the Maison No. 20 website with more photos of the lounge area and the other bedroom.

This is the results of my painting so far........



Unfortunately it is a 3 story house so I still have the shutters/volets on the ground floor to go.......so if anyone feels like a spot of painting, you know where I am!


Mr FF has made a new shutter for one of the windows and in his spare? time will make the other. I am in the process of painting it :-)


He is also going to make some volets for the dormer windows in the attic but they need a little work before that can happen.


This is our new front door.......


Tomorrow I am painting the frame again and also need to pretty window frame at the top, Mr FF is going to remove the glass so that it will be easier for me to paint.

Well this painting girl is all painted out and off for a nice soak in the bath!

à très bientôt

  5. Do you think that Mr. F. F. could come and live with me for a while ? I think that you have got a good one there !!!! Votre maison est tres beau/ belle? I love it. I think that shutters are one of my favourite things. It all looks so beautiful.Give Mr. F.F. a glass of vin rouge and let him jump in the bath after you. ( or with you, if you so desire !!!! )

  9. Hi Leeann,

    I adore your home ~ you have made it so beautiful.
    The shutters and front door are perfect and must be so lovely living there.

  26. Hi Leeann
    I hope I'm right in thinking that at least the ground floor shutters will be marginally easier to paint! I would help if I could, truly! And the colour is gorgeous!

  27. My goodness - again I am asking for a swap of lives- just for a summer moment. It's a little chilly here at the moment and those lovely shutters really make me want to go back to France - great job
